Autumn Blessings

Can you believe that it is the middle of the week already? Time sure is flying by. I have so many things I need to get done, I am wondering if I will but that is what I usually do. I always have more than one project going at a time. I am also a quilter and I do some sewing.

On to the card for today. This one is for Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16. Dawn always has some great color combinations. Since it is a challenge for me to put colors together, I always like to see what I can come up with.

I thought these were some great colors for the fall. So that is the direction that I went. I even used Rangers Crackle Accents to cover my pitcher of leaves. I love this stuff because you put it on and let it dry on its own and it crackles, you don't have to heat it. I made sure I did that part and then set it aside and finished the card. I used versa mark to put a little extra to the card base itself.

My husband really liked how it turned out. He is my biggest supporter in what I do. I show him when I am done and have him give me his opinion. There are times he makes a suggestion what else I can do. But then on the other hand he could just be saying he likes it to he won't hurt my feelings. But he usually gives me his honest opinion.

Thanks for stopping by today and having a look.
Have a wonderful rest of the day and will see you soon!
